Universities and careers
Inspiration and guidance - the keys to your success. It's about the right place for you.
Oxbridge is not for everyone - there are loads of great places many are better for your ambitions too - but this kind of hit rate doesn't come by adopting a factory-line approach for teaching or university advice. It comes through inspiration!
30% of our university applicants in the 2012-13 cycle have secured Oxford or Cambridge offers! That's not a total of 30 from a larger 6th form, it's 30%!
We have a great ratio of university offers per student - well over 3 from the maximum of 5 in the UK system. It means that most students are getting offers from their university of choice.
If, like most of our students, you plan to continue your studies, we’ll
get you ready for university entrance in the UK or abroad with
preparatory lessons, a mock-exam day and follow-up interviews with external experts, aptitude test preparation and all the other help and advice you
need. We have specialist staff offering guidance on Oxbridge – 25 to 30
per cent of our students get places every year – and colleges in North
America and Europe, as well as careers in science and medicine, work experience and
even gap years.
If you’re undecided about your next step, your tutor is there to discuss the options and help you find the most suitable path. You can check out what the world’s leading higher education institutions have got to offer at our annual universities showcase and find out more about placements and holiday experience at the Futurewise Fair. We also invite organisations such as Morgan Stanley and Deloitte to come in and explain the attractions of their training schemes, in case you want to make your way in the world straight away. If you need inspiration about your next step or are investigating your options, our Inspire Me! programme is just what you're looking for.
And if you want to defy convention, we can help with that too. We’re not afraid of iTunesU or myriads of brilliant podcasts or twitter feeds that will help set you on your way.
Our programme of visiting speakers goes beyond traditional careers advice. It brings in individuals and groups to share their fascinating careers/life stories , inspiring students, parents and alumni to think differently.
